Georgia Metropolitan Dance Theatre (GMDT) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, student-based dance company housed in the studios of Georgia Dance Conservatory on the Marietta Square. Formerly known as the Ruth Mitchell Dance Theatre, GMDT's passion for the performing arts remains the same as it strives to provide Georgia audiences with dance performances that entertain, educate, and delight patrons of all ages. Under the artistic direction of Ashleigh Whitworth, GMDT has become a name synonymous with high quality dance performances where students and professionals dance together and where the arts are celebrated through a range of diverse dance programs and community involvement.
Georgia Metropolitan Dance Theatre is committed to the presentation of professional quality, varied dance programs, with specific goals of providing local dancers and choreographers a showcase for their work, and pre-professional dancers with performance opportunities. We strive to balance entertainment with educational concepts, while reaching a broad audience.
Help us continue to offer these opportunities to our wonderful pre-professional dancers, choreographers and our local community. Make a donation, sponsor our season or help to maintain our beautiful costumes. We appreciate your support of our organization.
